Seems like it wasn’t a good day for the Indian batsmen, who’s wickets were bundled up by the cricketers of England one after the other but they tried their best at the field and backed the bowlers.
While Kuldeep Yadav gave an outstanding performance with his batting skills, MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, were all over the field and gave an amazing performance.
A video of Rohit Sharma taking the catch of Moeen Ali has been making rounds on the social media. It is being termed as the best catch of the innings.
The well-flighted delivery by Yuzvendra Chahal was hit with full power by Moeen Ali. He attempted a big shot, however, the ball landed in the hands of Rohit Sharma. He went on to cover a lot of ground before he finally held the ball in his hand.
Here, have a look at the catch of the innings from last night’s match :
